Buffalo Delivers 8X Blu-ray Drives, An Industry First

buffaloblu-rayexternal-lg(2).jpgBuffalo has hit an industry first with the announcement of a couple of 8X Blu-ray drives headed for Japan next month. The external BR-816U2 and internal Serial ATA-based BR-816FBS can both record dual-layer 50GB discs at 8X speed meaning a single-layer disc can be recorded in around 15 minutes. The external drive is unique with both a USB 2.0 interface and an external Serial ATA connection that loses no bandwidth despite the fact that it's external. The two drives both come with Cyberlink software to guide you through disc authoring and can burn rewritable Blu-ray discs at 2X, as well as both CD's and DVD's. Buffalo has hinted at an international release, but when the BR-816U2 and BR-816FBS hit Japan next month, they'll cost the American equivalent of $435 and $382 respectively.
